I really like this song.

Utley's face when Fanny is singing is priceless. LOL

I'm sure they all enjoyed working with this Latin tart!

When I saw footage from the Chicago show, I was hoping it was gonna be good concert audio instead of the studio version of the song. Still fun to watch tho.

My first thought was: who is Fanny Lu ? Second thought was: gosh she's CUTE ! Third thought was: I love this song.

I did not know who Fanny Lu was but I was picturing a woman with a Shakira look. Close enough.

"Jimmy, I love you!"

"I love you too!"

It's even better when you see it. Just got the email from Marg.com about the video.

I have to say that I did take that last song off my playlist. The last three songs-- I Wave Bye Bye, Colour of the Sun, and Oldest Surfer On The Beach--- ending the album sets a different tone for me and that song just interrupts that feeling.

It's not that I don't like hearing that version...it's great back to back with the first one.

I'm guessing it's a landing strip pattern.

I do like both versions of the song, except for the contrived "I love you" exchange at the end in this one. Just seems like such an afterthought and out of place.

Agreed, also don't like the talking at the end of grandpa rode a rocket. I don't mind the thank you NASA or Neil, just everything after.
